Connaught Junior School is a mixed junior academy school with 335 children on their register. Having secured their sports premium, the school wanted an outdoor gym to make an additional and sustainable improvement to the quality of the PE on offer. The gym needed to be suitable for all abilities, allowing children to develop and progress over the terms and years. It was essential that the gym was safe for use with minimal supervision and robust enough to withstand heavy use during and after school as well as for pupils at the school for years to come.
Fresh Air Fitness supplied and installed a nine-piece outdoor gym which would provide a variety of physical benefits. From the children’s KS1 and 2 range, a Double Air Walker, Air Skier, Elliptical Cross Trainer, Double Cross Country Skier and Rider were installed to get hearts pumping. An Arm and Pedal Bike, T’ai Chi Spinners, Hip Twister and Seated Leg Press were also selected to facilitate whole body strength building, tone, balance and co-ordination.
